Oh, you have one barleywine review, that's cute.
Yeah... Working on changing that. I just sometimes don't do reviews, or do notes and take way too long to transcribe them. You may have the crown... for now...
Oatmeal Stouts and English Barleywines
Galaxy hopped IPAs and Pales ftw
Hoppy spicy Belgians, farmhouse/saisons, Jack's Abby lagers, not in that order though. Jacks Abby #1!
This is where I am, but throw in imperial stouts and barleywines.
For about 5 years I couldn't get my hands on enough IPAs/DIPAs. I would try every single one I would see, and still be in search of more. I would still drink other styles, especially Belgian Quads. About a year ago, I realized that there are far too many IPAs on the market, and most of them are less than amazing. Lately I've been imbibing a lot more Barleywines, Saisons, Stouts of all types, and still a fair share of Quads. My favorite beer is still the one in my hand.
I drink alot of IPAs, but if I dont know what to get at a bar and Im stuck, i almost always grab a porter or black ale/lager. If Edmund Fitzgerald or Siberian Night is around, thats my fallback option.
Also, I tend to rely on German light lagers as well.
Really depends on my mood but sorry to say, I'm rarely in the mood for a porter.
Brown Ale, Porter, Bock, Barleywine
Tis the season!
The Barleywine-Strong Ale distinction has always baffled me a little, it's such a grey area to how or if they are actually two different things. I get that a Belgian Strong is different because it utilizes Belgian yeast, but an American Strong Ale and a Barleywine just strike me as one and the same.
Attention Cicerones on BA please clear this up for me!
- ive become a HUGE IPA guy ovr the last 2yrs..tried as many as i cld/can- Always
Great Lakes "Nosferatu" was EPIC this yr..and mostly always! (tho an Imperial "Red" Ale)
-so was the GL "Lake Erie Monster"
& Sierra's "Hoptimum"
any Great Lakes brew! also Monty Pythons Grail Ale from Black Sheep Brewery!!!! thats the best!
Huge fan of Oatmeal Stouts.... although i have an ever growing infactuation with Dopplebocks.
Saisons's and IPA'S
Hands down, IPA - the bigger the hop bomb the better.
ESB's. They are like me, really interesting and under-appreciated!
BA stouts first and then strong ales such as various Bruery varieties second. I am still sampling various styles but these are my favs. Least fav are extremly hoppy IPA's.
Quad/Belgian Strong Dark
Stouts and saisons.
Double/Imperial Stouts...though I've been drinking a lot of sours lately
Stouts have always been my favorite, but I've really been drinking a lot of IPAs the last year or so.
I go through phases, but ambers are pretty much what I think of when I think "beer". Balanced and delicious.
All belgian everything. Also ipas and stouts.
BJCP Style 12A - Brown Porter... VERY closely followed by 14B - American IPA
Trying to add some specificity to the thread
"stout"? come on!
Scottish ales > Marzens > Stouts > Porters > everything else (because I can't think of a style I don't enjoy!)
Belgian Strong Dark Ales...especially after a long day at the ranch.
1. Anything blonde and Belgian - single abbey, saison, Belgian IPA, Tripel, Witbier, geuze,BSPA
3. Russian Imperial Stout
4. American IPA
Im generally not into barleywines and old ales-otherwise I like it all
American IPAs followed by big ass stouts.
Lately IPA's and flavored porters.
very hard question answer....
I like many styles (though mostly not lagers) and general prefernces have evolved very considerably over the last decade
but in no particular order:
English barleywine/Old Ale
This changes too much. Started stout, went lager for a bit, came back to ale via IPA and currently I'm in the middle of an imp stout kick.
Over all favorite style is Barleywine, either American or English.
1st - Belgian Strong Dark Ales
2nd - Imperial Stouts
3rd - Quads
Generally my favorite styles are the darker ones, stouts, porters, dopplebocks, barley wines, scotch ales, old ales, brown ales, etc etc.
Least Favorites: IPAs,DIPAs,Bitters
